Price, food, and waiter...Everything was terrible. The worst thing was the behaviour of a waiter. Could you just please not charge tips automatically or learn what hospitality is and how to talk to people as a waiter? If I consider the volume of the food that I had, the price was very expensive.

I have been coming to this place since 2006 and here's my experience. FOOD: I only had really good meals here. I am not an expert in Persian cuisine so if you wanna go ahead complaining about authenticity, I am not your guy. The food is delicious and plentiful and fresh. The rest is a question of style and taste.... More

Stay away! If you know how Iranian food is supposed to taste don't bother coming here. It was awful! The kabob was dry, I had cinnamon in it, and tasted more like Arab food. There was not one food item that we like! Don't bother coming here if you plan on eating Iranian food, etc.

We were outside during a late afternoon so I am not commenting the Persian interior, which some will certainly appreciate. The waiter did not seem very interested or friendly and while serving our starters still within a reasonable amount of time (just) he forgot to bring us our plates. The main course, spicy chicken, was disappointing in size and taste.... More

AND PRICY! I am very disappointed. After reading reviews and seeing the pictures, I thought of checking this place out for some authentic Persian food and it was anything but authentic. Very pricy for the quality they offered. Some of the dishes were not even Persian (not a flaw really) but the kebabs were way below my expectation as a... More

I've been here with friends on a couple occasions, most recently in May, and every time I go I ask myself why I don't think of this place more often. Everything I've had is quite good: nicely seasoned beef kabob, delicious hummus. They also have giant platter options on the menu -- a good choice when you're in a group... More

In the more quiet part of Raday Utca, this restaurant with an impressive interior and authentic kitchen offer good food and ceratinly is good value for money, given the area. Food is very tastefully prepared. Original menu choices available.

We would call here daily for Mojitos. They were very good and the lady who served us was very friendly.

Service was really slow - waited too long for menus, then to give the order. We could see other tables had same problem. There seemed to be only one server for a large number of tables in our upstairs area of the restaurant although we saw at least two other servers working also. Server didn't write down the orders and... More
